When logging in to iCloud.com there is check box that allows the user to remain logged in for two weeks. This has worked fine  in the past but stopped working a couple of days ago for me on various machine with various browsers. The persistent login works as long as the browner is running. However, after closing it, login is required the next time the site is accessed. I hadn't realized what a pain it is to have this feature removed if in fact that is what has happened. Is there perhaps a setting I am missing? Any wisdom welcome!

    Hi Gary ...

     

    Maybe the cache, a reset, or deleting cookies will help, or all three.

     

     

    Try this on Safari ...

     

    From the Safari menu bar click Safari > Empty Cache. See if you can stay logged into iCloud.

     

    If not, back to the Safari menu bar click Safari > Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons, click Reset

     

    If that didn't help either, go to Safari > Preferences then select the Privacy tab then click Details.

     

    Type   apple   in the search field top right corner of that window then click Remove All Done.

     

    Quit then relaunch Safari. Try iCloud.com.

    I had same problem. Your suggested 'trick' of removing all plugins / extensions worked fine. To note though I had ONLY one extension that was DIVX extension. Many thanks again as it was a real pain to have to login each time.
